About Us

Meet the Leadership Team

Leadership requires vision and commitment, two traits honed over decades of experience by our two principals:

Lorien as a leader in the fields of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence; Rick as a leader in Collaborative Intelligence (aka Knowledge Management) and Social Learning. Together, they are well equipped to help you understand how your organization creates, retains, and makes use of their data, information, and knowledge.
